Central Air Conditioning Systems

Central air conditioning systems are only an option for you if your home utilizes a furnace for heating. This system uses an indoor coil which is installed on top of the furnace along with an outdoor compressor/condenser. We then run what are called “line sets” which are two copper tubes from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit. These tubes carry refrigerant from the outdoor unit to the indoor coil which is now installed on top of your furnace. We install a new thermostat in your home that has two settings which are Heat and Cool. 

When summer comes around you simply switch your thermostat from Heat over to Cool and select your temperature. Your furnace then turns on but because you selected the cool option the flame no longer fires up. Instead, the fan turns on and the outdoor unit pumps refrigerant through the indoor coil which gets extremely cold. The air that your furnace blows through the coil then comes out of your floor vents/registers cold instead of hot and that is a very base level description on how this system works. Call us for any central air conditioning repair questions!

Ductless Mini Split Systems

Ductless mini split systems are also heat pump systems and are pretty much your only option if you do not have a furnace with ductwork running throughout your home or if you do not want to go through the intrusive and expensive process of installing duct work throughout your home. Hence the name “Ductless”. These systems consist of an outdoor unit just like the other systems and an indoor, wall mounted, air handling unit that we install in every room you need air conditioning and/or heating in. We then run a lineset from the outdoor unit to each indoor air handler. 

One of these air handlers will be required for every room/space you need/want cooling or heating in. These systems can have as many as 5 indoor units to a single outdoor unit. Meaning 5 rooms can have cooling/heating or if you are on a budget you could simply just put a single indoor air handling unit in your master bedroom. Reach out to JJ&A ac repair man for any ductless mini split system air conditioning repair services.

Central Heat Pump Systems

Central Heat Pump systems are air conditioning systems that can also provide heating to your home. Despite the name, heat pumps do not generate heat – they move heat from one place to another. A furnace creates heat that is distributed throughout a home, but a heat pump absorbs heat energy from the outside air (even in cold temperatures) and transfers it to the indoor air. When in cooling mode a heat pump and an air conditioner are functionally identical, absorbing heat from the indoor air and releasing it through the outdoor unit. 

 To conclude, a heat pump is an air conditioning unit with the capability of reversing its operations from absorbing heat from the inside of the house and expelling it outside the house to absorbing heat from the outside the house and expelling it inside the house.
